Well so far your all wrong! Muu ha ha ha ha ( maniacal laughter).
Exner was not involved with this vehicle although the coachbuilder who created some of his dreams created this one also. Mamma Mia!

Wooowoooowoooow holy crap, just where would this woman be "allowed" to walk around that like that? I know of liberal places like Berkeley Ca, I have been there for a parade (should I have guessed?) called "How Berkeley can you be?" where there were naked people abound.



I went for the "Art cars" but the side shows have kept me far away the years since.

What is the car and who was driving it.

well I screwed up again if you click the picture it tells info ,try to answer without clicking.
I don't get the headlamps, I am amazed that was made in the thirties, looks like something someone would have done in the sixties, amazing. But even with the headlights (or maybe because of them?) that car is so frigging sexy it's crazy. I love that thing!

It does look more like Ford and I maybe have even seen it. But those quarters, those fins come on they ARE 57 Plymouth! Wild, ok, it's Mercury or Lincoln.

You never know, a designer from Chrysler may have went over to Ford, it wouldn't be the first time.

You are absolutely right! A Chrysler design guy might have gone to work for Ford!


But that has nothing to do with this vehicle. It ain't a Ford.

Actually the car in question was constructed by Ghia of Turin. The second hint car was built by Vignale. The answer I'm looking for is which U.S. Company commissioned them. Most of the Major U.S. companies used the Italian Coachbuilders to construct their concept cars at one time or another. The designs and clay mock ups were done in house but the metal work was done by the Italians.

Who done it?
